Teaching Applications: Where Is NI Multisim Used?
Featured Application Areas
Analog Circuits and Analysis
Using the intuitive graphical environment of Multisim, students can quickly place electronic components and simulate behavior to understand fundamental concepts. The component library includes resistors, capacitors, inductors, power sources, switches, bipolar junction transistors, and field effect transistors while the environment comprises oscilloscope instruments, probes, and SPICE analyses to truly build analog electronics expertise. Complete integration with the NI myDAQ and NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) platforms help students learn through hands-on exploration.
Digital Logic Circuits, Microcontrollers, and FPGAs
Multisim includes digital logic gates, counters, and microcontrollers to augment the teaching approach of introductory digital electronics topics such as Boolean algebra. The specialized programmable logic device schematic gives students the ability to translate digital logic gate circuits into raw VHDL deployed to FPGA targets from partners such as Digilent so students can deploy to hardware to learn digital fundamentals without needing to learn complex syntax.
Power Electronics and Systems
Energy and power is a critical area of new courses and research in educational institutes around the world. The Multisim environment includes a library of components and specialized analyses for students to explore concepts including AC-to-DC conversion, DC-to-DC switch mode power supplies, DC-to-AC for motor drives, renewable energy, rectifiers, inverters, and PWM.
Student Design and Research Projects
With the same Multisim environment, students can use the accompanying NI Ultiboard layout and routing environment to prototype physical printed circuit board (PCB) designs. Student design and research projects can be either stand-alone PCBs, or integrated as a part of a system using NI myDAQ or NI myRIO.
